These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Quiet day

I guess the recent cold snap is finally catching up with me. Or perhaps it is the barometric pressure changes as it it warming again. Whatever, my knees are very achy today. They just feel cold and creaky. Sounds like a good day to stay in, doesn't it? And I probably will, for the most part. I'll keep moving to avoid allowing the joints to stiffen up, but I'm not going to push it too hard. Just don't feel like it, so there!

Jazi has been trembling most of the morning. I'm not sure what to make of it. I can't figure out is something scared her or if she might be in pain. She has been a little jumpy for a few days, so I suspect it it the former. When it snowed she was uneasy, and I'm supposing she remembers last winter with the snow sliding off the roof with loud "clunks." She really hated that, and was nervous a lot of the time. And she has also developed a dislike for my cell phone telling me I have a text message. She doesn't seem to have a problem with the tone when I get a phone call. I've changed the tone, trying all kind of different sound or tunes, but it doesn't seem to matter. I wonder if it is because it has been happening with more frequency lately. Oh well. We'll get through it.

And as I wrote that, she quit shaking and is snuggled down beside me. Go figure.

I'm babysitting with Linda's birds while she visits her parents in Florida. She has two Zebra finches. Mine are Society and Spice finches, and all three breeds have their own "song." It is so nice to hear them when they all get wound up. The two cages are side by side, and they seem to thrive on the company. Right now all several birds are chirping and singing, and it is such a happy clamor. Actually, it isn't a clamor, as they don't get loud at all, but it is a cheerful compilation of sound, nonetheless.

I'm kinda tired today. Not sure what that is from, as I'm sleeping well and not doing any physical labor to speak of. I'm thinking a nap is likely to occur today! In fact, would you excuse me please? Thank you.


  1. Take it easy Lyn..naps and a little mild pain medication will ease the joint pain.

  2. You're right, Moni. I've done that and now I'm having a mug of tea and a bagel thin with homemade pimento cheese. Life is much better!

  3. Finches love to flock. The more the merrier.

  4. They do, don't they, Merikay? I love it when they are being social!

  5. I sure hope your not coming down with something Lyn, it's that time of year! Jake is pretty sick, I hate when he is sick and over the road.
    I understand about the knees and hips and hands and feet! I've been feeling it too lately and napped myself yesterday. Over did it today of coarse and have to clean tomorrow! Oh well I did it to myself! Take care of yourself, Love Di ♥

  6. have been so busy and your life has been hectic, so maybe things are catching up with you.....take it easy and let things go. Nothing HAS to be done immediately unless its a life-saving venture. Relax woman!!!!

  7. Oh no, Di, it's nothing like that. It doesn't feel like the "I'm going to be sick" feeling, just a lazy kind of tired. When the fibro acts up I feel tired, too, and it could be related to that. I'm doing a trial of not taking the prescription anti-inflammatory as I started taking tart cherry juice capsules about 10 days ago, supposedly good for inflammation. If I have much problem, I can go back on the script. Anyway, I figure it could be part of the problem, change in the body, you know. We'll see!

    Ruth, I know. I've thought about that, too. I'm not pushing myself. Obviously!

  8. Jazi doesn't like the beep yoour phone makes when you get a text. Huh. She has textaphobia apparently.

  9. Lisa, I'm enjoying 60s for the next few days. Nice!

    Mary, ha ha ha ha ha! You could be right!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
